A New Horizon for US Wheat Flour Producers

Horizon Milling LLC has announced it will begin producing whole wheat flour at its facility in Kenosha,Wisconsin later this year. The flour miller currently produces whole wheat flour at three facilities including in Ogden, Utah. However, when the project is complete the flour miller will have doubled its current overall whole wheat flour capacity.

A leading U.S. flour miller, Horizon Milling, LLC is a joint venture between CHS Inc. and Cargill. Dan Dye, the company’s President said of the expansion, “This increase in whole wheat capacity reflects consumers’ growing desire to incorporate more whole grains into their diets.”

Whole grains are beneficial because whole grain products deliver important nutrients, such as iron, magnesium, selenium, B vitamins and dietary fiber. In addition, diets rich in whole grains may help to support heart health and a healthy weight

Dye continued, “We are expanding our ability to help our customers formulate great-tasting, wholesome and nutritious products that today’s consumers are seeking for themselves and their families.”

Horizon Milling also offers other products that can help customers meet the growing demand for products rich with whole grain, including GrainWise® wheat aleurone and WheatSelect® white spring whole wheat flour.
